The poor weather continues to be the main story at Jerez as the teams struggle to complete as much dry running as they can in the increasingly rare breaks between showers.
Lotus have some ground to make up today after losing a lot of time yesterday after Heikki Kovalainen crashed and a replacement from wing was not available. The team were expecting to receive one overnight.
